AFW: Colgate Smile Interview

(This blogpost / video is partially in Dutch)

Hi everyone, 

My fashion week adventure has finished and I must admit, I had a blast! In total I have been to one event, the Colgate Bloggers event and to three(!) shows! Today I have been to two shows so another post about today will follow as soon as possible! 

For now I want to show you, mostly my Dutch readers, this video from the Colgate Smile Interview I had at the bloggers event hosted by Colgate & Cream PR! 

I am curious to find out what you all think of it!! 


Shoplog Double Beauty & Herome

My purchases, all from Herome, stuffed in a Herome beauty bag.

Good evening all,

As you know I have been to two beauty events lately, the Double Beauty showroom opening and the Herome Cosmetics 31st birthday party  The events were lovely and I couldn’t help myself but do some shopping. So now I have bought quite the huge nail polish and nail care collection in the last two to three weeks haha.

In this blogpost I will post some pictures from the items I have bought. I really hope you all like it!

I bought this W.I.C. nail polishes at the Double Beauty showroom opening, the first nail polish is number 57, Napoli, the second was in the goodiebag we got at the event and is number 154 Aarhus. Last but not least, number 82, Paris with a free matching lipgloss! 
But that’s not all. At the birthday party from Herome I also bought some nice nail care products and one polish.  
This nail whitener is so chique and sophisticated. It makes the nail white even whiter and the  natural pink color of your nails more pink. One of the most beautiful polishes in my opinion! I also bought some nail care products, a glass-vile and S.O.S. nail repair glue. And, Herome gave all the party people a nice gift, their wonderpen. This is a pencil with a little brush at the  end with which you can soften and moisturize your cuticles and your nail, I am really curious about the results from using the wonderpen! 

And so my Herome products addiction began… When I went to the drugstore, to buy some skin and hair care products, I saw the discount corner and the sold a Herome French Manicure Set Glamour for only โ‚ฌ10,- when the normal price would have been above โ‚ฌ20,-! So I just couldn’t help myself and bought this set as well.  Who says I am a nail polish addict?!


Event: Showroom opening Double Beauty

Hi all, long time no see ๐Ÿ˜‰ … I know I have been blogging less lately and I am so sorry. I promise you all that I am coming back strong haha. There are a lot of nice articles ready to be published or in draft to be written! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have been quite busy with graduating lately and I can finally see, I am graduated!! 
Officially I am now a Bachelor of Applied Psychology, yay me! :”D So tomorrow you can expect a search for the right graduation dress post, besides the weekly tuesdays Instagram update. For now I want to show some pictures to you from a store opening I went to last week with fellow blogger Deniece from Kotton Kandy! ๐Ÿ™‚

PS: The moment GFC will shot down comes closer and closer and I saw some handy blogpost about how to convert your Google Reader feeds into your Bloglovin’ account! Read it HERE and HERE, hope to see you all on Bloglovin’!! <3

The showroom opening from Double Beauty was very well organised, small, but great to get to meet the owners and to try the products they sell. You could do your nails, you could get visage and the girls where also available to style your hair! I loved the cozy feel of the opening and how open the girls from Double Beauty where to me and Deniece. 

Double Beauty sells a lot of different brands, for example Herome, Herome WIC, Everyday Minerals, Too Faced, Burt’s Bees, Bedhead, Geisha and soon they will even start their own skincare line with Monoi de Tahiti products ( I LOVE Monoi de Tahiti!!! <3 )

I really think the opening was a very nice and pampering experience! We got our nails done, my hair was styled and I went home with some lovely nailpolishes from WIC and a goodiebag!! Oh, before I forget… the Double Beauty showroom is based in Amsterdam at the Spaandammerstraat for the ones interested ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

The girl behind Sarandipity + Versatile blogger award

Hi all, 

I have seen this lovely tag on a few blogs and it got me inspired to make the same sort of get to know me post… Some time ago I already wrote a blogpost about my name, Saranda, and what it means but what does that really tell you all about who Saranda actually is? 

Well in this post you are going to find out a bit, and you wil also get the change to ask me some questions ๐Ÿ™‚ 

     | Bloglovin’ | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter |

Seven things you (probably) don’t know about me: 
1. I am a student Applied Psychology, aspiring to study a Masters in Forensics, Criminology and Law to work as a Clinical Assessment Psychologist when I am done studying.
2. I have been together with my boyfriend for almost 5 years (anniversary on the 3rd of August!!)
3. I am a series addict, for real!! I follow like 10 series or more, and I really love every single one of them! Some of the series are Pretty Little Liars, Game of Thrones, the Lying Game, Vampire Diaries, Once upon a time, Breaking Bad, Glee and the Office. I love violent / manly series as much as the cute-fairytale-like series.
4. I hate staying up too long when I am tired but I tend to always do so… Weird isn’t it?
5. Uhm… when I don’t have to go to school or work, I can sit in my pj’s all day long! Or in a homesuit haha, I am a comfy kind of girl.
6. My nomination for the versatile blogger award is like a month or two old, I sometimes lack at keeping up to date… Sorry Starftsh! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 
7. I love socializing but I sometimes tend to feel shy or misplaced at a party, which makes me nervous and very quiet.

And know it is your turn! Do you have any questions for me? If yes, please let me know in a comment or send me a message through the contact form / my email ๐Ÿ™‚ All questions will be answered next week in a second the girl behind Sarandipity blogpost.

PS: I do really have post-potter depression sometimes haha, I miss the story! The movies, waiting for the next book or movie… When the last movie got out I went to a Harry Potter marathon with a girlfriend and that was just amazing, only die-hard Harry Potter fans, being at the cinema for more than 24 hours, such an experience!
